2018 Identified Need
When complete, the Preston-Forestville State Trail will connect the existing Root River and Harmony-Preston State Trails to Forestville-Mystery Cave State Park. To date, one mile of trail and two bridges are built. The next phase of the project will complete 6 miles of trail, connecting Preston to Carimona, and includes 7 bridges as the trail follows the bank of the South Branch of the Root River and it’s narrow valley.
